By definition, buffer data is only measured.  Nothing new is added by
the above paragraph.  Please remove it.

Like the patch Subject line use "the buffer data hash" instead of the
"hash of a buffer".

There's no need to include the boolean parameter name
"measure_buf_hash".  Please remove it.

Please abbreviate the boolean name to "hash".   The test would then be
"if (hash == true)" or "if (hash)".

IMA always measures/appraises files and measures buffer data based on
policy.  The above sentence succintly summarizes what
process_buffer_measurement() does.   This patch adds support for
measuring the "buffer data hash".   The following would be an
appropriate change.

measured

This patch should be limited to adding "buffer data hash" support. 
These changes don't belong in this patch.  Please remove.

I don't see a good no reason for defining a new audit cause.  Use the
existing "hashing_error".
